The illusive PCV beastie

@ graves, not so much stumble, but sometimes it will die when Im stopping for lights.

@ greyskorpion, actually the damn thing runs great. Im just not getting the gas milage I used to. I had no idea it was under there until today. Did a google search and found many pics showing it under there. Even found a link back to FF on how to do it. .....i will be going south to my mechanic buddys, then I see how hard it is to remove the IM......... I see manual labor in my immediate future.

hell I need to become more intimate with Pats heart anywaays.......

I really do appreciate all the help and eduction you have graciously shared with my d00ffuz 0ld arse.

You guys RAWX!!!

Looks like the other end of the PCV system, the hose from the intake TO the Head.

I just removed my IM, replaced gaskets and PCV valve/hose. When i put it back together i ended up putting a different (newer) IAC on. It was siezed up, and prevented my car from starting unless i had gas pedal pressed(open throttle) I hit it with my socket wrench and it worked for a bit then stalled again at idle. I replaced it with my old IAC and car runs back to normal.

As for stalling at lights etc. My car did the same thing, ran great while in open throttle but whenever i let off the gas pedal i stalled quickly.

I again fixed this by replacing the IAC with my older working one.

Not saying this is what your issue is, but noting its similar with what i just did to my car.

One more thing to make sure is that your Intake is sealed from the MAF to the throttle body, any leaks that bypass the MAF and cause bad reads could also be culprit to stumbling/poor idle. I know my car did not like not having the Intake attached to the throttlebody when i was trying to use Seafoam IM/TB cleaner by spraying it at the TB plate. I had to use the plastic tube it comes with cut to fit the rubber boot and seal it back over the throttle body.
